  • Building careers, managing capitals 

    Flynn, Emma (University of St Andrews, 2015-06) - Thesis
    I sought to find out whether this was a tension between artistic and commercial in the career of visual artists, and if so, how this tension was managed. In attempting to uncover information which could address the ...
  • The evolutionary ecology of the Lygaeidae 

    Burdfield-Steel, Emily R.; Shuker, David M. (2014-06) - Journal item
    The Lygaeidae (sensu lato) are a highly successful family of true bugs found worldwide, yet many aspects of their ecology and evolution remain obscure or unknown. While a few species have attracted considerable attention ...
  • Genetic analysis of life-history constraint and evolution in a wild ungulate population 

    Morrissey, Michael Blair; Walling, Craig; Wilson, Alastair; Pemberton, Josephine; Clutton-Brock, Tim; Kruuk, Loeske (2012-04) - Journal article
    Trade-offs among life-history traits are central to evolutionary theory. In quantitative genetic terms, trade-offs may be manifested as negative genetic covariances relative to the direction of selection on phenotypic ...
  • Mass gained during breeding positively correlates with adult survival because both reflect life history adaptation to seasonal food availability 

    Cox, Daniel; Cresswell, Will (2014-04) - Journal article
    Both mass (as a measure of body reserves) during breeding and adult survival should reflect variation in food availability. Those species that are adapted to less seasonally variable foraging niches and so where competition ...
  • Mechanical vulnerability explains size-dependent mortality of reef corals 

    Madin, J.S.; Baird, A.H.; Dornelas, M.; Connolly, S.R. (2014-08) - Journal article
    Understanding life history and demographic variation among species within communities is a central ecological goal. Mortality schedules are especially important in ecosystems where disturbance plays a major role in structuring ...
